Overview - SCADAPhone - a Windows based Alarm Dialer
ScadaPhone is an alarm dialer and runs on all Windows platforms, including Window7 (32 or 64 bit) & server2008. Using an OPC (or DDE, OLE) connection, ScadaPhone continuously polls the SCADA server for the values of critical data points. When an alarm is detected, ScadaPhone can be configured to annunciate voice or text messages via telephone, numeric pager, alphanumeric pager, or email to a list of alarm contacts. Alarms can also be annunciated over the SCADA computer's speaker system during times when it is expected that an operator will be present at the system console.
The SCADA tags that trigger a callout, the alarm messages, and the people to call, are all user configurable.
Alarms can be divided into "Alarm Groups" so that different categories of alarms can be sent to the appropriate group of contacts. ScadaPhone provides a comprehensive method of managing alarms and contacts through its scheduler.
Alarm reporting will persist until all of the active alarms have been acknowledged. In addition to reporting and acknowledging alarms, ScadaPhone can also be used to monitor and change the values of any data point in the SCADA system.
|ScadaPhone is available in two versions ::|
|ScadaPhone ::||A full-featured version with no limitations on the number of alarms, alarm groups, or user defined menus.|
|ScadaPhone Lite ::||This version is less expensive for smaller applications that do not need the full power of the full version. ScadaPhone Lite is limited to 16 alarms, 1 alarm group, and 1 user defined menu. It does not support email alarm contacts, computed tag values, or the remote access software interface.|
ScadaPhone is very powerful yet simple to configure and use. It reads and writes alarm statuses and data values to and from the SCADA software.
ScadaPhone comes pre-configured to easily connect with the following SCADA servers:
|Setting up the client/server interface to any pre-configured SCADA server requires just a few mouse clicks. If a SCADA system you are using is not listed, it can be easily added to ScadaPhone’s configuration by entering its OPC server name.|
ScadaPhone comes with a standard voice modem (external or internal). Recording and playback of voice messages can be performed using either the voice modem or the computer's internal sound card. All audio is stored in the form of standard " * .WAV " files.
ScadaPhone has many other user-friendly features. You can review these features in the data sheet. If you have need for a feature not currently supported, please let us know. Solving your need is our goal and commitment.
